Default Windows Live Messenger not working properly?

Haven't been able to log into WLM on my main desktop last couple of days.... well after my thing with removing the virus woes.

It works on my laptop.

Here's the screen shot :



Tried reinstalling, deleting and reinstalling, checking windows firewall settings, etc.

EDIT: started using imageshack, it doesn't auto-resize. fail..

Imageshack does resize. There's a forum link you can use.

Have you tried removing WLM, and then doing a full delete? Clean Installation of Windows Live Messenger – Windows Vista - Windows Live

Did you check to see if you've got a proxy set in internet options/connections/lan settings?

I agree, that's probably what it is as malware uses that method quite often.

control panel / internet options / connections tab / lan settings (lower r/h corner).

Check to make sure you don't have anything checked in the proxy area, the "bypass proxy" doesn't work well.
